“With its trendy glass frontage, 1930’s style lighting, bare surfaces & bold colours, this brasserie brings some sun tanned metropolitan fizz to northerly Inverness. Eye catching views of the river & ancient castle add to the thrill of eating here, while the kitchen adds plenty of global zing to well sourced
scottish ingredients” – The Good Food Guide

“In Inverness, Rocpool is arguably the best restaurant of its type, a vibrant eatery serving fresh, tasty food in a relaxed, stylish environment” – The List

“For some time now the consistently good place to eat in the centre” – Scotland the Best

“This buzzy contemporary brasserie operation capitalises on its corner site on the banks of the River Ness. The interior is a cool exercise in contemporary design flair featuring lots of wood and a décor of natural tones. On the menu is an appealing cast of crowd-pleasing modern European dishes built on top-class Scottish produce” – The 2 Rosettes

cancellation policy

Rocpool is an independent, family-run restaurant relying upon bookings being honoured by our guests or sufficient notice being given of any required changes to reservations.

We therefore kindly request that diners give us notification if a cancellation or an amendment is required by phoning the restaurant on 01463 717274. Please do not email.

For tables of 1-4 guests we request 24 hours’ notice of cancellation or amendment wherever possible.

For tables with 5 or more diners we require 48 hours’ notice of cancellation or amendment.

For all reservations we require your debit/credit card details. These will be held in a secure PCI-DSS compliant vault. Your booking will automatically incur a fee of £20 per person if we do not receive 24 hours’ notice of cancellation or failure to show up. Unfortunately, our experience of parties failing to amend, cancel or show up for their bookings dictates this precaution is now necessary.

We will contact you a day or two prior to your reservation via text message to confirm. Unfortunately we are unable to hold unconfirmed reservations.

We politely ask that you are ready to be seated at your time of booking or contact us if you are running late. We hold tables for 15 minutes and will release it if we have not been contacted.

To ensure that we can cater for you appropriately please notify us of any dietary requirements prior to your visit.

By making a reservation at Rocpool you agree to our reservation and cancellation terms.

We wish to thank you for your understanding and co-operation and look forward to welcoming you.
